The LMD-B170’s industry standard 17-inch screen is ideal for a wide variety of applications, from a desk-top use to wall-mounting, arm-mounting and outfield shooting. The Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution is approximately 200% higher resolution than Wide-XG A(1366 x 768 or 1280 x 768), giving you sharp focus for pixel-by-pixel checking of a Full HD video with no scaling.
The monitor has a robust and stylish sharp-edges chassis. Lighter weight and lower power consumption saves you money as well as space and weight in digital galleries. The monitor is also ideal for stand-alone applications such as basic non-linear editing, audio control room, simple video monitoring or video shooting. It's easy to carry.
The LMD-B170 inherits its all-in-one design style from the PVM-A and LMD-A series. It has the mandatory interfaces such as SDI, HDMI and composite video with stereo analogue audio. You can monitor the embedded audio signals of an SDI signal on the audio level meters of the screen. 2W+2W front stereo speakers are more powerful than a monaural speaker or a rear speaker system and you can get a good stereophonic effect from them. It can be powered by both AC and DC with no AC adaptor. The supplied stand has a tilt function and a 100mm x 100mm wall mounting function means you can install it more flexibly. Its natural ventilation system ensures there are no distracting cooling fan noise.
With the same operability as the PVM-A and LMD-A Series, you can easily go back and forth when using monitors from the different ranges in one system. You can easily select the best monitor for a function, according to your feature, quality and budget requirements.
LMD-B170 offers vital functions, including Markers, WFM/Vector, audio level meters, timecode display, camera focus function, side by side, Flip H/V and on-screen tally. The user reset function makes it easy to return the monitor to the default setting very quickly. This is very useful if a user is not familiar with the monitor settings.
